An Analysis: Implementation of youth centers in Musanze, Rwanda: Presentation by Bixby Center Summer Award Recipient

Presentation | October 10 | 12-1 p.m. | University Hall, Room 440/Bixby Center

 Kalee Singh, DrPH Student, SPH

 Bixby Center at UC Berkeley

Kalee will present her analysis on the implementation of
the Bixby Center’s youth center, based in the district of
Musanze, Rwanda. The youth center model aims to
utilize a multi-pronged approach–addressing both
structural and social determinants–to improve the health

and wellbeing of youth in Rwanda. The model, co-
designed and managed by youth, strives to empower

adolescents through the provision of comprehensive

sexual education and linkages to high-quality, youth-
friendly reproductive health services, livelihood skills, and

general health information. The overarching goal of
Kalee’s research was to develop a descriptive case study
of the youth center model, documenting its effectiveness
in addressing the health and wellbeing of adolescents and
young adults in the Musanze district of Rwanda.
